Well, here we are ladies and gentlemen. My favorite costume fail, Sad Pattern! It seems fitting that this pattern is my favorite, because this is the pattern that got this entire blog rolling.
One day in May, my friend Cheryl was searching for some vintage clothing patterns (she shares my obsession). She sent me a link to a particularly good Donna Karan for Vogue wrap skirt. As I was getting back to the main search on the site, I saw this pattern in the search listings. I wet my pants because I was laughing so hard. I knew I just had to share it with the rest of my friends. I found a few other stinkers, commented on them and then made a post on my other sewing blog. The response was great and a few days later, Sad Patterns was born.
Without further ado…
“No Johnny, it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a white sheet with a matching hood for Halloween. Besides it’s a time saver QUICKIE, that’s how I was able to make all your friends matching ones. Won’t you all look amazing marching down the street together when you go to your friend Jamal’s Halloween party?!”
